math, algebra whatever is is called now

I feel DUMB. cm/sec to mph and other conversions. I hate showing my work! I never did it in school. My way was not the teachers way but I would come up with right answer. Now teen must show work and do it very different than I learned (algebra was a long time ago)  Quadratic equation on paper is no problem, I do not know how to do it using a calculator. Damn, I am going to have to go back to school just to help teen with work!

Just random stuff

Been thinking again.

Why do cats shred paper towels rolls?
When did I get so lazy?
Why is my tea cup empty? refilling now...
I am a cat lady border lining on crazy cat lady (or maybe I am)
I wonder how much a cattle guard costs?
Should I make a bucket list?
Cats are funny when they are watching for the mouse.
I have socks on, why are my feet still cold? 
What color should I paint my living room walls?
Is Cheyenne pregnant?
Will I get my new fence up anytime soon?
What shall I plant?

My thoughts are scatterbrained.

hate being sick

I cannot seem to kick this stupid cold to the curb. Not losing a dang thing except sleep.

I worry about Pat. His physical health is stable right now but I am worried about his mental health. He is suffering from depression but refuses to acknowledge it. He told the doctor no. I live with him. I see it. He is down about retirement and his health and no money. He deals with it by using anger. I cannot say anything to him because he will get angry... Brook and I have both noticed some short term memory loss. I hope it is not Alzheimer. Several members of his family have it. I wonder if his carotid is stopping up? Reduced blood flow to brain... All I can do is watch out for him, which I do do in spite of his insistence otherwise.

Headed into laundry room. Never ending job.

What a lovey way to start the year out.Sick and sleep deprived.  The endless coughing started yesterday  I would rather go back to the constant sneezing. Then comes the cough all night. no amount of propping up or cough medicine would help Sleep 2 hours then cough 2 hours. Gonna take Brook to school soon. then I am back to bed even if it does make me hurt

diet phooey

I am working on my physical life right now. Not happy with my health the way it is right now. The aches and pains are compounded by my extra weight. The extra weight complicates my GERD and my diabetes. My blood pressure has gone up.

Today I had a Slimfast for breakfast, fish for lunch and italian chicken is in the crookpot for dinner. I am satisfied for now.

Falling rock

Took a trip today to Fort Payne Alabama. Beautiful ride home thru Mentone. I kept seeingthese signs watch for Falling rock. I have been looking for falling rock for 50 years. Never have seen him but I have seen where he has been.

Goodbye Little Bit

Little Bit is gone now. She was Susie's oldest baby, came from her first litter. She was 15 years old. Not bad for a barn cat. She quit eating a couple days ago so I knew the end was near. She tried following me when I went outside, cried and fell over. She is now next to my beloved Buddy.

New year, same stuff, new stuff

  Today is a new year, 2013. I want so much for this to be a good year, who doesn't? I honestly do not know what the year will bring. I know I will live unless I die, then I will quit living.

Will I start a diet? Most likely. Will I fail at it? Most likely. More than likely I will not make it past the first day. Should I get a book?   I might read it. Maybe a cookbook? Interesting. An exercise dvd for older fat people?   Whatever I do, I will be doing for me and for my family. I want to live.

I tipped the scales this morning at 203.8. My blood pressure was 144/85. Not good. I have not been taking care of myself. I have to change that. I am so busy taking care of Brook and Pat. How can I take care of them if I kick the bucket?
